Star of the Day

Today's Star of the Day: Zelandia aka Zela

Zela is an Australorp.
Her breed was developed in Australia from Orpington stock in the 1920's.
She has the Orpington's sweet, loving nature and amazing green/black plumage.

An Australorp set a world record by laying 364 eggs in 365 days without added winter lighting.
Zela very regularly (maybe not every day) lays a large sized brown tinted egg.

She loves to be held and cuddled.
Zela and Honey fight to be the first to sit on my lap.
Zela usually wins.....she is the flock mistress after all!
